I just bought a set of Denise yesterday and I absolutely hate them... and the store won't take them back except for credit. I know that's better than nothing but... wah!

I have the Boye set and I really prefer the metal needles but of course it has some drawbacks. Their sizes are not all consistant with other brands - ie Boye size 6 is 4.25mm whereas others are 4.00mm. The set also lacks a short enough cable to make a 16" circular.

I prefer the Boye by leaps and bounds to the Denise but I see an Options in my future... maybe once I buy enough yarn and other goodies to soak up the Denise purchasing blunder.

I'd happily fork out extra for the Options and buy all the little extra's too. But if the website doesn't ship internationally then i guess that rules them out..
There is a shop in London that sells the Denise set for 30. So i guess I'm suck with buying those. Who knows what I'll think of them, but right now anything is better than the bamboo ones attached to straws as cable with glue. My last knitting project was literaly held together on the needle with tape!
Thanks for everyones post and suggestions!

I think you can only get the KnitPicks off of their website. I have them, and I LOVE them.
